Healing for Mission
We hear many stories around the world that tell how God’s healing touch on a person’s life opened their heart to the Good News of Jesus. But Lalu’s story has a different twist.
A young Christian woman in Northeast India, Lalu describes herself as “a cripple girl.” A bone fracture in her hip as a child means she’s lived most of her life with limited mobility. Her father is gone, and it’s her brother, a leader in the church, who loves and cares for her.
She also participated in a discipleship-mission training program that Global Disciples partners with in her region.
Lalu said, “After the training period, I was very interested to preach the Gospel with great passion.” She went along on the outreach but due to her physical problem, she struggled because her team travelled on foot.
“I fell into the ditches several times,” she said, “and my condition worsened. I was admitted to the hospital for an operation, but it was so much money. My brother tried to get the money, but inside I was not happy—the expense was beyond imagination. So I decided to fast and pray for three days. I cried to the Lord for healing…and He healed me!”
When Lalu returned to the hospital, the doctors were amazed to see Jesus had healed her.
Now, her healing is fueling her mission.
“The desire to preach the Gospel sent me out to a village,” Lalu said. “There I shared my testimony, and the Good News of Jesus, and two families came to Christ. In another village, everyone gathered to hear the Gospel for the first time, and one family came to Christ. All glory goes to Jesus!”
Lalu continues her mission. “Pray for me—I’m a cripple girl, but I am preaching the Gospel to the poor and needy; my vision is to reach whole villages in this region,” she says.
What a testimony to the power of Jesus to heal, and to empower His people to share the Good News with least-reached people!
And God is using many disciple-makers like Lalu, in India and around the world, to multiply the Body of Christ among those still waiting to hear the Gospel.
